HO AIRMAIL
Unearmarked Sum Will Go
Toward Setting Up New
Connecting Routes.
In an effort to bolster air trana
port companies now deeply "In the
red” and at the same time to further
a "scientific” development of the do
mestic airmail system, Congress, de
parting from all precedent, has grant
ed the Post Office Department an un
earmarked fund of $850,000 In the
new appropriation bill.
After prolonged discussion by Sen
ate and House conferees, both bodies
have agreed to a total of $16,650,000
'* for the domestic airmail service.
This is a compromise figure, the
f House having authorized only $15,
800,000, which was increased by the
Senate to $16,931,336.
“The additional amount over the
House bill allowed by the conference
agreement, $850,000,” it was reported
by the conference managers, ”Ls in
cluded for additional routes and in
» creased frequencies on existing routes,
and the managers on the part of
both houses have agreed that this
additional sum of $850,000 is to be
allocated by the Post Office Depart
ment without reference to any spe
cific earmarking of particular serv
ices which may have been indicated
collaterally in connection with the j
passage and discussion of the appro
priation.”
Will Be Spread Out.
While postal officials declined to
comment officially on the item while |
the bill still remains under consid
eration by Congress, it is understood
m the $850,000 item Is to be “spread
out" over the country in the form of
feeder and auxiliary routes, badly
needed connecting links and increased
frequency of service.
Typical of the new routes under
consideration under terms of the $850,
000 increase is one into Northern
Michigan, now lacking service. A
similar new route between Washing
ton and Norfolk. Va.. is to be opened,
probably April 7, under existing au
thorization.
In the meantime, the Senate Past
Offire and Past Roads Committee ap- I
proved a bill authorizing a 5.000-mtle
extension ot existing airmail routes.
Chairman M'Kellar attached the pro
• ' vision to a bill previously approved by
the House, which would authorize ex
perimental service in the tri-State
nrea of West Virginia, Ohio and Penn
sylvania.
senator McKellar said existing alr
» mail laws authorizes 35,000 miles of
routes and that the airmail appro
priation increase would permit exten
y *i°n of contract lines beyond that
limit. It was estimated that If the
new bill becomes a law 2.000 additional
miles could be added to airmail lines
Immediately.
Typical of the important new con
necting links now under consideration
are routes from Jacksonville, Fla., to
New Orleans and from the Southern
- transcontinental route, probably at
Phoenix. Ariz., north across the
Transcontinental <fc Western Air main
line to the Salt Lake City-Los Angeles
route of Western Air Express. This
latter route would provide direct con
nection between the important nutting
areas of Arizona, Utah, Idaho and
Montana.
Although the Post Office Depart
ment has not made any official an
nouncement of plans, it is understood
it is the intention of postal officials
to add at least one extra round trip
a day on all routes where single daily
round trips now are being flown.
Not Primary Purpose.
Granting of the $850,000 “without
strings'’ is expected to go a long way
toward meeting the most serious finan
cial emergencies confronting contract
airmail operators, although from the
standpoint of the Federal Govern
i ment and the airmail-using public
this is not the primary purpose of the
appropriation.
Col. Edgar S. Gorrell, president of
the Air Transport Association of
America, warned Congress during
hearings on the bill that many ot
the domestic air transport companies
face bankruptcy unless relief is grant
ed. His complaint that airlines are
forced to operate schedules for con
venience of the airmail service at
times which do not coincide with de
mands of air passengers, who pay the
bulk of the company revenues, is ex
pected to be at least partially met
by establishment of new schedules on
certain existing routes.
From the standpoint of the atr
mail system of the country, however,
the new item is of importance because
It will permit filling in of the more
serious existing gaps, providing a bet
ter balanced, more useful service for
the country as a whole, it was ex
plained.
PROTESTS TARIFF CUT
A. F. L. Opposes Reduction in Rate
on British Aluminum.
The American Federation of Labor
yesterday protested to the Committee
for Reciprocity Information against
granting reduction in tariff rates on
aluminum in the reciprocal trade
‘ treaty with Great Britain.
t The present rate is 7 cents per
pound on aluminum and aluminum
alloys. Reduction of this figure, it
was contended, would result in a flood
" of cheap imports and consequent un
employment or lower labor standards
1 for American aluminum workers.
